Sheffield FC started their pre-season campaign with a victory on Friday evening, as they ran out 2-1 winners over Evo-Stik Division One North opponents, Ossett Albion. 

Club managed to take the lead inside the first 15 seconds of the game, with Eva-Kray Batousol giving the hosts a lightning start, but The Unicorns levelled on 23 minutes when Pat Lindley lobbed keeper Jamie Green from the edge of the area. 

Sheffield fielded a completely different eleven in the second half, and wrapped things up on 69 minutes when Mason Barlow was quickest to react to a rebound off the cross bar, to tap in from close range.
